Do Chiropractors Treat Arm Problems?
Chiropractic treatments are not only effective for the spine, but also for the upper extremities as well. Patients who have symptoms related to their shoulders, elbows and hands can benefit from chiropractic treatments.
In addition to joint manipulation, our office uses a variety of physiotherapy protocols to reduce inflammation, including deep tissue massage, ultrasound, electrical muscle stimulation, heat and ice. By combining these treatments with an exercise rehabilitation protocol, we've had great success healing extremity problems.
How Chiropractic Can Help You
In order to properly heal your back, chiropractors perform "adjustments", or manipulations, to your spine. These treatments reduce or eliminate the inflammation on the nerve or in the surrounding soft tissue, like your muscles, tendons or ligaments. With the inflammation gone and your range of motion is restored, you can enjoy a pain free spine that's less likely to become arthritic as you age.
Dr. Schillinger uses a variety of adjusting techniques, which allows you to choose a treatment style that's most comfortable for you.
A major benefit of chiropractic care is that it does not require medications or surgery.
Because Schillinger Chiropractic and Wellness Center is focused on patient education, you'll learn the lifestyle changes you'll need to make (in exercise, diet, stress management) in order to maintain your spinal health on your own.
